Finish-a-long Quarter 3

I did pretty well in the last quarter, but I'm going to scale down my list for this next quarter ( though there is still too much on it) making it a bit more achievable, I hope.
Anyway, here goes:

1)Sparkle Punch Quilt.
This is the next quilt to be loaded on the longarm

2)Scrap Vomit
This just needs binding

3)Triangles Baby Quilt
This needs quilting and binding.
4) Scrappy Trip around the World (no 2)
Blocks need to be sewn together before I can continue

5) X and + quilt for Lois
Need to sew  the blocks together.

6)Blue Medallion Quilt
This is a new one I have started. It's destined for my BF's son. I had done one paper pieced different block for this but then changed my mind but it wasn't thrilling me. So, combined with the fact that I wanted to make a designed- by- me medallion quilt ( as opposed to a known pattern), I embarked on this new blue quilt.  I'm thrilled with it so far:

7) Scrappy Value Quilt.
I have taken up Bonnie Hunters idea of leaders and enders, and started sewing HST's at the beginning and end of chain piecing other blocks. This way, you barely notice you are making another quilt. Every time I use a fabric, I cut an extra 5 inch square and combine one low volume with another of a 'louder' volume and make the HST's

I've accumulated quite a pile already!
8)It's a Wonderful World
This is still a pile of blocks. I'm hoping to make a few more blocks for this quilt in Jenny Kingwell's Green Tea and Sweet Beans class at FQR retreat.
I think that is more than enough. I also think Katie is doing a fantastic job with the FAL.


Finish Along 2014


  1. These are all gorgeous Carol! Particularly loving your medallion quilt :)

  2. Three of those projects should be a snap to finish but the one Im really looking forward to seeing in all it’s finished glory is your scrappy trip. It’s beautiful already unfinished so its going to knock my socks off when you’re showing off the finished quilt.

    Good luck with your list. It’s kinda huge but I saw you blitz last quarter so Im convinced you’ll probably do it again !
